My e-mail messages in inbox are arranged with newest message first. I like to read the messages in chronological order. When a message is deleted I want the next newer message to open, but it goes the other way and I cannot find the setting for this. Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

Double-click mail.delete_matches_sort_order to true: If you set View -> Sort by -> Descending when you delete a message it will move the selection up to the next most recent message (rather than to the next oldest message).

Thanks, that did it (although I may have voided my warranty in the process)
